Maybe something like this: “Happy New Year to all of our loyal cellular customers. Please call us for information on getting a free New Years service upgrade”

Security sources believe a spam message from her mobile phone operator wishing her a happy new year...

That's pretty funny.

Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat’s milk. The older of the mothers pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. And they start reminiscing.

“This is my oldest son Mohammed. He would be 24 years old now.” “Yes, I remember him as a baby” says the other mother cheerfully. “He’s a martyr now though” mum confides. “Oh, so sad, dear” says the other.

And this is my second son Kalid. He would be 21.” “Oh, I remember him,” says the other happily, “he had such curly hair when he was born”. “He’s a martyr too” says mum quietly. “Oh, gracious me ...” says the other.

“And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He would be 18”, she whispers. “Yes” says the friend enthusiastically, “I remember when he first started school”. He’s a martyr also,” says mum, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and says ......

They blow up so fast, don’t they?”

According to the story at the time... yes. It was specifically a “Happy New Years” message from the phone company to all customers using their service.

..oops!

this could be useful- send a random signal to be sent to all cell phones, and that would cut down on using them for bomb detonators

This should be SOP for all cell companies on New Year’s Eve in the US.

Just reach out with a message. If anyone is rigged to blow—instant detonation.

Do it a few times.

It would counter a means to explode a bomb and kill innocent people.

Maybe she should have applied to the air lines for ‘frequent flyer miles’.

Cause parts of her were “flying here. Flying there. Flying everywhere.”

Uh, this could be urban legend and source for many one line humor retorts and images.

Why would a suicide bomber use a cell phone activated bomb? A simple push button would do the trick.

Unless suicide bombers are THAT stupid.
